info_outline What is Ontology



Ontology Short Description

General Data and Information. Ontology is a public blockchain project with distributed data collaboration aiming to build a peer to peer cross system trust network. Ontology trust network provides a strategic cooperation of data systems and trust sources. This network is composed of decentralized identity verification systems, multi factor authentication, distributed ledger technology and distributed data exchange All business types can be applied to Ontology blockchain technology without the need of users having prior knowledge on distributed networks. Led by a global blockchain expert team, Ontology provides distributed infrastructure to various businesses and decentralized applications. Ontology aims to bind decentralized digital world to the real world using “Ontology Common” or “Ontology Custom” designs. These designs enable secure end effective decentralized systems. Ontology’s ecosystem can be divided into three categories: The Technological Ecosystem, The Application Ecosystem and The Governance Ecosystem.

Ontology system architecture has a flexible design allowing for expansions and support for ever growing applications. The businesses Ontology aims to support include distributed ledgers, smart contracts, distributed authentication protocols, distributed data exchange protocols, and more. The layers of Ontology network can be divided into three: core layer, application layer and user layer. Core layer is composed of protocols and chain groups, application layer is composed of partners, application frameworks and modules, and the user layer is composed of Ontology ecosystem application users. Partners hold great importance building the Ontology ecosystem. Milestones. In 2017, Ontology was the first China based blockchain project to join DIF. In 2018, Ontology released the VBFT consensus algorithm, announced the consensus economic model, released the ONTO app, was selected as a part of Microsoft Accelerator and announced their sharding design. In 2019, Ontology development platform was added to Google Cloud Marketplace, and Ontology multichain design, WASM Testnet and multichain testnet was released. Utility.

There are more than 2 million community contributors, 900 technical contributors, 190 partners and 200 team members in Ontology Blockchain Network. There are also 50 and growing dApps, 56 nodes and more than 517000 wallet addresses in Ontology Ecosystem. Ontology token uses VBFT, a combination of three different models of Proof of Stake (PoS), Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) and Verifiable Random Functions (VRF). The application areas of Ontology include finance, payments, insurance, consumer, internet of things, media, software development, medicine, asset titles, and government activities such as voting systems. Significant Features. Ontology brings solutions to current trust system flaws such as data fragmentation, individual's lack of role, monopolization of data management, false identity verification, transparency and security issues, weak reputation systems and insufficient community management. Ontology offers blockchain solutions presenting custom modules to businesses with issuable trust and verifiable identity systems. One of the key powers of Ontology is dealing with current real-life business issues instead of presenting a framework for future cases..
